4. Put a Cool Roof Coating on your Warehouse Roof

Cool roofs have a key characteristic: high solar reflectance, or albedo. This means they reflect sunlight and heat away from a building, keeping roof temperatures lower. This is especially important in warm and sunny climates. By having high thermal emittance as well, cool roofs help to absorb less heat, making them up to 50-60°F (28-33°C) cooler than regular materials during the hottest summer days.

For over 20 years, building owners and roofing contractors have been using cool roofing products on various types of buildings – commercial, industrial, and residential. These products can be installed on low-slope roofs commonly seen on offices and commercial buildings.


5. Add in Evaporator Coolers Near Work Station

6. Modify Cold Storage Systems with Insulation or Smart Thermostats

Additionally, installing an alarm system will promptly alert maintenance staff if the temperature in any area rises above the desired threshold.

Another key aspect is to prioritize insulation around the cold storage area. Furthermore, positioning the cold storage systems furthest away from significant heat sources can significantly enhance their warehouse cooling efficiency. By implementing these strategies, your cold storage systems will operate at peak performance while minimizing energy consumption. If there is availability to upgrade the thermostat of a very old system consider doing it if cost effective.
